Let it rain

One of the things we experienced in Costa Rica that we don't normally experience in Southern California... or anywhere for that matter... was a torrential downpour.

Now, I don't mean just a hard rain, or even a hard storm. This was the skies unleashing their fury on Quepos.

From May to October is Costa Rica's rainy season, though they call it the Green Season to tourists and such. I mean, Green sounds better than Rainy, right? It didn't rain the first three days I was there, but when Mrs. LB and I were there together, it rained both nights.

On Thursday, it rained from about 4 p.m. to about 5 a.m., a solid 13 hours of this torrential rain. It was about the same on Friday. On the Friday, we were out at the beach and went into an Internet cafe to send some e-mails. In about 20 minutes, it went from overcast to a blanket of rain. It was actually fun because it was a new experience for us. We had to get a cab in the pouring rain and the drive to our hotel was, interesting.

I shot a video of the rain. This was in the hotel restaurant.
